Three parts Desire is the quietly compelling story of Didi, who lives as a recluse with her faithful ayah Sita - the unflinching buffer against the storms that have swept through Didi’s life. The narrative is driven by the force of Didi’s memories and the memories of her daughter Baby, whose search for an identity is closely linked to the secrets Didi is keen to bury: one, a secret she carries from her New York youth into her doomed marriage with Purush, and the other, the far darker one she took away with her from 3, Chor Bagh, the home she briefly shared with him, before a series of d ramatic events forced her to leave. Shuttling between Delhi, New York, Chor Bagh and a quite hill station, and spanning the period from the 1950s to the 1980s, each skein of this intricately woven tale reveals itself to discovery and delight.
